... we added a dusky grouse to our list of new wildlife, then climbed a wooded section up to Cub Lake where we had lunch on a huge boulder with the ground squirrels, then made a steep ascent into a burn area that was unlike anything we'd seen - both somewhat ugly and very interesting, and finally walked down along a pretty stream to the end of the trail. Everyone did well on the 7+ mile hike. After the hike, the four of us went into the town ...
... from the deck. We decided to have bratwurst and spaetzle tonight. After supper I laid down for a bit because I have a headache, probably from the alititude. It is still over 7000 ft. here in Estes Park. Then we cleaned up the dishes. When I sat down to log onto the computer I got a Skype call from my friend Sr. Peg in Indiana. What a surprise! Then I looked at emails and wrote this blog. We are getting up early tomorrow to hike the Bear Lake Trail.
... the long horn sheep continued to graze nonchalantly. This was MY excitement for the day – or so I thought!!!!!
We continued on our way – our destination was to be the Stanley Hotel. As many of you know, the Stanley Hotel has a rather chequered history – but is most well known as being the setting for Stephen King’s novel, 'The Shining’. We arrived and booked ourselves in for the midday ...

The views were spectacular of course, so we stopped for many pictures before we reached the Bear Lake area for hiking. We hiked to three lakes...Bear Lake, Nymph Lake, and Dream Lake. Each was beautiful in it's own way, yet different from the others. There was a fourth lake but ...
2) put a waxy coating on your lure, and that helps the lure stay above water
3) Cast you rod by bringing the rod back behind your head then bring the rod forward until the lure hits the water
4) Leave the lure on the water for a reasonable amount of time, and then take your rod again to pull it out of the water and behind your head again

Historical Traveler Reviews A Mountain Valley Home B&B Inn Estes Park
Beautiful Wedding in Estes Park
We were married April 29, 2006 in the Mountain Valley B&B in Estes Park. The ceremony was performed by Paul and all arrangements were made by Lynn. It couldn't have been better. Everything went very smoothly. All the guest were very impressed and complimented us on such a great choice.
We stayed the weekend and enjoyed several wonderful restaurants that were recommended by Lynn and Paul, We also enjoyed the breathtaking sights of Rocky Mountain National Park which is practically outside their door. We were also greeted each morning by as many as 20 elk foraging outside our bedroom window along with several mule deer.
The rooms are exquisitely furnished and the jacuzzi hit the spot after a very busy day. Pauls' breakfast's are to die for, something new and delicious each morning.
This was our second stay with Lynn and Paul and we plan on returning soon. They are tremendous hosts and even greater people.
We thank them for making this very special day so memorable.

Outstanding B&B, Very Romantic Accommodations
Lynn and Paul are excellent hosts! They recommended a number of restaurants and the one we went to was outstanding. The rooms are furninshed with top of the line furniture. They had many candles in the room which we used to create a very romantic atmosphere. Paul's breakfast in the morning was a perfect start to the day. We will be back next time we are in Estes Park.
Absolutely loved A Mountain Valley Home!
Our stay with Lynn and Paul was a perfect weekend getaway....complete with romantic rooms, king sized bed with silky soft sheets and a truely gourmet breakfast courtesy of Paul. You won't regret staying at this place....you'll do what we did....look at your calender to see when you can plan your next escape! We are looking forward to going back!
Great weekend away
My wife and I went to Estes Park for our 7-year anniversary. This was our first experience with any Bed & Breakfast. We were not sure what to expect. Lynn and Paul went out of their way to make us feel right at home. They made sure that our weekend was romantic and offered many suggestions in and around town. The room was great and was very cozy. We loved getting to know everybody and had a few laughs. Both my wife and I know where we will be staying again once we get back up there. The rooms were clean, and very quite. We loved it!
Everything I'd hoped for...and MORE!
If you're looking for a fabulous, quiet getaway, I cannot recommend A Mountain Valley Home B&B highly enough! Paul & Lynn are the most cordial of hosts, and went out of their way to make this stay a memorable one.
The experience was "above & beyond what we could've hoped or imagined". In looking for a special place to steal away with my husband before his departure to Afghanistan, I was able to make some special arrangements with Lynn prior to our arrival. Her willingness to do whatever she could to make our weekend memorable will not quickly be forgotten.
From the Romance Package, to the exquisite decorating throughout their home, the views, the deer and elk in the yard in the morning, to dinner reservations, and Paul's fabulous breakfast, you can bet that we will hold this weekend in our hearts for a long time to come, and gladly share our recommendations with everyone!
Romantic and Relaxing
My husband and I spent a wonderfully romantic and relaxing Saturday night at Mountain Valley Home Bed and Breakfast. Our room was spacious, immaculate and looked like a page out of House Beautiful. The jacuzzi tub and two person shower were especially delightful and the four poster bed was so warm and cozy we never wanted to leave! As if the the bed and breakfast weren't lovely enough, the view from our room was breathtaking and the six deer who peered in our window as we were waking on Sunday morning were a treat for us "city slickers!" We can't recommend the Mountain Valley Home Bed and Breakfast highly enough. Lynn and Paul are the hosts and they do an absolutely fabulous job of treating their guests like royalty and anticipating their every need. You owe it to yourself to spend some time at the Mountain Valley Home Bed and Breakfast!
We enjoyed the awesome atmosphere of the 'Bear's Den' room and felt like we were in a secluded cabin. There was beauty and calm for all the senses and really made our get-away a relaxing time together. The mountain setting is beautiful, with a multitude of outdoor activities available as well as fun local shopping. More than anything, we enjoyed our time together in the quiet of our room. To top that off is a gourmet breakfast with wonderful conversation. Gary & Jaynie
The Peak of Estes Park
For our first visit to the Colorado Rocky Mountains, my husband and I could not have chosen a more perfect home-away-from-home than A Mountain Valley Home B&B. The accommodations were exceptional -- we stayed in the Mountain View Room complete with an in-room jacuzzi, private bath, fireplace, king-size bed, beautiful decor throughout. There are 5 guest rooms in total -- and all are wonderfully detailed. And no matter what direction you looked from the windows, you could see the Rocky Mountains! ...Just beautiful!
We also had access to a Great Room with a fireplace, DVD's, CD's, comfortable sofas, a fully-equipped kitchen and a full-sized hot tub/spa right off from the Great Room! And, wildlife was EVERYWHERE -- Mule Deer, Elk, Mountain Sheep, Rabbits. Every morning during breakfast, we were honored with the presence of a sweet Mule Deer with her two "children". We have never stayed in a more beautiful B&B in all of our many travels!
The perfection of the visit was all due to our wonderful hosts, Lynn and Paul. They made us feel completely at home during our 6-day stay. Lynn was always there to provide us with info for our daily planning -- Horseback riding at the YMCA, restaurant selections, shopping in Estes Park, hiking and driving suggestions through RMNP. And Paul greeted us every morning with the most delectable breakfasts served on the large back porch or in the lovely dining room -- Paul is quite the chef! Our talks and socializing with Lynn and Paul during the breakfast hour was as memorable as our sight-seeing of the mountains! They are spectacular people! And, it was absolutely wonderful getting to know the other guests during our stay. When we left for home, we felt like we were leaving dear friends behind.
Overall, I would say this is the best B&B we have ever stayed in on holiday, and I consider myself to be very selective. We highly recommend A Mountain Valley Home B&B. We will be telling our friends and family about this lovely B&B. And, when we return to Estes Park, we know where we will be staying!
Happy in the mountains
My husband and I had a lovely 3 day stay with Lynn and Paul, the new owners of this property. The room was gorgeous, the bed so comfortable, and the sheets divine!! Of course, the scenery in Rocky Mountain Park is phenomenal, but sharing our breakfast with elk and deer is not MY normal AM routine! Paul mans the kitchen for a delicious out-door breakfast, with a beautiful yogurt parfait to begin and hearty entree folowups. The inn includes a comfortable downstairs great room and kitchen so one can eat-in if you choose. A hot-tub is also available to ease sore muscles after a long hike in the Park. I think inns are made by the personalities of the owners (as well as the little details), and Lynn and Paul fit the bill. I would heartily recomment this property to any one. I know you'll enjoy your stay.
Being Spoiled at the Best B&B We've Ever Stayed At
If you want to be spoiled for a few days, then you should stay with Ed Peterson at his "A Mountain Valley Home" B&B Inn, in Estes Park.
Ed really is a perfect host. The spacious rooms of his home are spotless and tastefully decorated; our king-size bed was extremely comfortable; there was even a washer/dryer in our bathroom. And you don't hear any outside noises at all in this residential section of town. Talk about quiet!
Breakfast was on the veranda, served personally by Ed, who offered to make whatever we wanted. And, he somehow "arranged" for deer and elk to parade through the yard for his guests.
Ed Peterson also graciously prepared a picnic lunch for us one day that included smoked trout and a bottle of wine, among other delights.
We hope we can go back soon - and often - to be spoiled again by Ed Peterson at the best Bed and Breakfast we have ever stayed at.
